Excise Officers Cite 12 Huckâ€™s Convenience Stores for Beer Prices
Indiana State Excise Police cited 12 Huck’s convenience stores in southern Indiana Thursday on 55 charges in connection with a two-month investigation related to beer prices.
Police say the stores offered a discount coupon on beer back in February.
Indiana law requires that alcoholic beverages be sold for the same price to all customers.
Since not every customer who purchased beer from Huck’s stores during the promotional period had coupons, they were not offered the beer for the discounted price.
The citations could result in a monetary fine of up to $1,000 per charge, or suspension of the alcoholic beverage permit for a period of time, or both a fine and suspension.
The Huck’s store on Washington Avenue in Vincennes was cited for Media Advertising while the Huck’s Store on North Sixth Street in Vincennes was cited for sales discrimination and media advertising.
Other stores cited are located in Petersburg, Paoli, Fort Branch, Newburgh, Evansville, Huntingburg, North Manchester, French Lick, Chandler, and Hope,
